The seven-year deal will see the company deliver food and beverages for 1,822 staff and clients at the broadcaster’s Donnybrook campus, which includes RTÉ’s television and radio studios, as well as the Fair City set.

Mount Charles said that following market research and analysing RTÉ’s requirements, it invested £100,000 to deliver a new experience.
